Real Madrid cool interest in Eden Hazard

Florentino Perez and Julen Lopetegui

The 27-year-old has been subject to serious interest from the Spanish giants in recent weeks despite the Blues insistence that they will not sell Hazard, despite reports of a potential offer upwards of £180m.

In the past week or so it finally became an exciting summer transfer window at Chelsea.

The Belgian has been heavily linked with a move to the Bernabeu this summer.

Who will be heading out the Stamford Bridge exit door?

Courtois has been the Spanish club's No 1 target for some time with the Real Madrid board convinced they will get their man as soon as Chelsea have signed a replacement.

A spokesman for Paddy Power said: "Chelsea are becoming a bit of a Sarri mess this summer - although, apparently, that's just the new manager's playing style".

If reports in Spain are to be believed then Real Madrid are not desperate to replace Cristiano Ronaldo with a big name signing rather the club has put its faith in existing crop of players, especially Gareth Bale. Another one of those names is Eden Hazard of Chelsea.

Real Madrid must pay a world record 225 million euros if they want to sign Eden Hazard, with Chelsea refusing to let the Belgian winger go easily according to the Daily Mail. We've seen transfer fees reported for Hazard in the £170-£180 million range, which would make him the second most expensive player of all time.

Slapping a price tag that high on a player who will be 28 in January is basically how you announce- "not for sale, period".

Keylor Navas is relaxed about his Real Madrid future after speaking with new coach Julen Lopetegui despite speculation constantly linking the club with other goalkeepers.
